   With the loss of Keith Olbermann's Countdown show it appears as though MSNBC is actually a more leftist network in it's evening lineup.

   Keith may have known Comcast would try and oust him and got the current management team to make the changes coming next week before Comcast puts their management in place.

    This mornings statement from Comcast may have been true.

  "Comcast has not closed the transaction for NBC Universal and has no operational control at any of its properties, including MSNBC," the statement said. "We pledged from the day the deal was announced that we would not interfere with NBC Universal's news operations. We have not & we will not."

   With the more reactionary Ed Schultz moving to prime time and Cenk Unger being added during the dinner hour it is apparent that the overall lineup is further to the left than it was.

   I believe Keith knew Comcast would try and oust Keith from MSNBC's lineup and he was tired of doing the show. Keith made sure to leave before Comcast would have a chance to establish the new lineup and that is why MSNBC is moving to the left.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
